Much of yoga as in life involves learning to let go. In a yoga practice, the “corpse” pose, often the very last position and its corollary, yoga nidra or the yogic sleep, require a profound letting go. This process involves not only physical relaxation but a kind of psychic relinquishing. We learn this by letting go in gravity and by allowing gravity to be our friend. In this talk Tias explores the art of “dropping in” and allowing the emotional and psychic layers of the body to dissolve. Tias discusses how savasana is a gateway to meditation and symbolically suggests the death of the identity making ego.
